Timming belt busted in my cd17 and engine is lock what could be the damage

Valves are all bent. The piece of timing belt is jammed and locking your motor up. Replacing the timing belt isn't really that hard if you understand how to get the engine back to #1 TDC on the compression stroke but you are going to have to have the head checked to make sure any and all bent valves are replaced. Get the Haynes repair Manual on your vehicle if your going to do this job yourself.

Broken timming belt

You do need to get the cams lined up and the crankshaft at top dead center. Though, if the belt broke, you may have bent some valves because this is an interference fit motor, meaning that if the timing belt breaks, some of the valves are left open far enough to where the pistons come up and hit and bend them, so the valves are stuck open.

Timming belt replacement

there are 2 engines, which one? 2.5 or 2.3? i have never done one on a 2.5, so this is for a 2.3. jack up the car, pull the right front wheel. pull the splash shield. now, i like lots of room, so i drain the radiator, and pull off the upper hose. support the motor with a jack that you can move up and down, and pull the motor mount. on a 2.3, i can guarantee you the mount will be bad. now, this is important. you MUST loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley, and, most important of all, the nut on the power steering pulley. this must be done BEFORE you pull the drive belt, or you will never get the p/s pulley nut loose. this pulley has to come off to get the covers off. there's a lot more, but that will get you started. however, the millenia belt is kevlar, and they wear like iron. if the belt breaks, nothing will hit, but it will leave you stranded. i would just let it go till it breaks.

Replace timing belt on Volvo S60

There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.
